Adele, The Weeknd, and Kendrick Lamar Will Headline The Grammys


Adele, The Weeknd, Kendrick Lamar and Little Big Town will all perform at the 2016 Grammy Awards in February, the Recording Academy announced Wednesday.

“This lineup of talented artists is just the beginning of what will, once again, prove to be music’s biggest night,”Recording Academy CEO Neil Portnow told the Associated Press. “We look forward to celebrating what’s been a wonderful year in music, honoring the best of the best and featuring never-before-seen performances.”

Lamar and The Weeknd are two of the most nominated artists at this year’s show. Lamar received the most, 11 nominations, for his album, To Kill a Butterfly. The Weeknd and Taylor Swift are tied for second, with seven nominations apiece. Little Big Town, has been nominated for two awards, including “Song of the Year.”

If Adele’s 25 seems conspicuously absent, it’s because the album is not in contention this year. (The cutoff for consideration was September 30, 2015. 25 was released November 20.) Adele will look to bring home some more hardware at next year’s show.

The 58th annual Grammy Awards will be held in Los Angeles February 15 and air live on CBS. In the meantime, check out a full list of the nominees right here.
